Who is your football mentor or inspiration? I don't know if there is one set person. Once I started training to be a long snapper in the NFL, Greg (Warren) and Pat Mannelly were guys I looked up to.

Who is your football mentor or inspiration? Definitely my grandmother, Virginia Lux. Anything to do with a mentor, or hero, it's always her. I was raised by my grandparents.
